Spinal Chord Injuries

Seven Figure Settlement from Japanese Automaker for Spinal Chord Injuries from Unsafe ATV
Our client Mike was a 21-year old kid who loved auto racing. One afternoon, Mike and some buddies went “off road” with their all-terrain vehicles (ATV’s).

When Mike went over a hill, his ATV flipped and came down on top of him. A handle bar installed on the back of the ATV crunched into Mike’s spinal chord, leaving him paralyzed.

With our late colleague and mentor, “Chips” Virgin, we developed proof that the Japanese manufacturer of the ATV knew it had a propensity to tip, knew of similar spinal chord injuries, including those of the type and kind resulting here, but had issued no recall or warning, and that safer engineering alternatives were available and feasible.

Today, Mike is literally a walking miracle. This is testament to his own incredible spirit, and a success story for the University of Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Spinal Chord Rehabilitation Center. He has two sons and a lovely wife, and has regain sufficient mobility to get behind the wheel of a race car. To us, Mike is a real-life hero.

The seven figure-settlement from the Japanese maker of the ATV we helped obtain has afforded Mike the opportunity to thrive and live productively that he might not otherwise have had.

Multi-Million Dollar Damage Verdict for Security Guard, 64, in Slip and Fall
Our client, Luis, was a 64-year old grandfather, with a retirement job as a bank security guard. While working on the job, he tripped and fell because of a defective walking surface where construction work in the bank building had been left uncompleted.

Unfortunately, Luis had a previously undiscovered condition in his spine known as an arteriovenous malformation, or “AVM.” The fall injured the AVM, which in turn, resulted in Luis becoming paraplegic and confined to life in a wheelchair.

Working with our client’s neurosurgeon, we succeeded in proving that a seemingly minor occurrence actually caused catastrophic injuries. As a result, the jury returned a $1.8-million damage award.
